Remember the old gang, back in the day, when there were only 2000 of us on the forum and we all used to try to get together when we could...

Remember all the regional events, events, rides, charities, things, that used to go down, and the fun we all had...

Patching up the bleeding, fixing the broken, nursing (or laughing at) those with hangovers...

The routes were still new to us, the stories were competitive with bragging rights to the best new route!!!!! 

Ride Reports meant something and we all tried to write the best ones we could.

So many of the old guys are gone, never to return, but hell, going through some old photo's tonight sure brought back some amazing memories...  ;D

I almost feel young again!!!!   8)

Share some of the old stories you remember guys, with a few pics... lets do a memory lane!!!   :ricky: :ricky: :ricky:

I remember that.... that was on the Dome Ride...

That was a great day out.
If I remember correctly, it was bloody cold early on. Something silly like -2.

       Easter weekend a few years back a bunch of us were on a 3 day ride.A storm was brewing, so we gunned for the shelter of the Nieuwoudville garage. There was this Soutie standing around with a few camera men.He showed interest in our group and start talking to one of our group,Barry Shaw.Asked Barry if he would mind interviewing him about his old AT. Barry being a smooth talker,went on, explaining the simplicty of his trusted AT. While Barry was talking to this stranger,the rest of us tried to get into some sort of rain gear.In the end the man introduced himself to Barry as Henry Cole.The rest of the conversation :  Barry: "Now what do you do for a living?" Henry: " I m riding bikes. Barry: Fuck ,you are a lucky bastid!  And off we went.  That evening at our campsite ,Barry googled this Henry chap. The next moment  he yelled: Boys, I m famous! I talked to a world famous film maker!   I think Henry Cole was amused by the fact that none of us knew him.
